help urgent

I have fedora 8, I made a change in the inittab file for the gui i.e changed from 3 to 5. now when i rebooted the grub prompt comes,
is working, but the image of kernel is not found. the tab is not working for the kernel command.Errors coming for the incomplete kernel command.

Any idea where to get the kernel image??

thanks & regards

You could have used much better subject title for your post. And Urgent? Not for anyone but YOU.

It seems you have edited something else as well. Just editing the inittab file to change run level should not bring this error.
If you could copy paste the error here it could be much better to understand what problem are facing.
